Amazing Full Smile Replacements
If you've lost some or all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay, or injury, dentures can be used to replace your missing teeth and restore your smile. Replacing missing teeth is critical not only to your appearance and self-confidence, but to your health as well. A complete set of teeth allows you to eat a varied diet full of wholesome, delicious foods, ensuring the continued health of your entire body. Without support from teeth or a denture, the muscles of the face begin to sag, making a person appear older than they really are. Eating, speaking, and looking your best become possible again with dentures and partials to replace missing teeth.
There are various types of dentures available for men and women seeking a convenient and comfortable tooth replacement option. A conventional denture is custom-crafted and placed in the patient's mouth following extraction of any remaining teeth. This process typically requires a number of months while the tissues fully heal. The full denture is held securely in place using special denture adhesive or natural suction.
Partial dentures are indicated when a patient has some healthy natural teeth remaining. We can use a partial denture to fill in the missing areas of your smile like completing a puzzle. Our partial dentures are custom-made to seamlessly blend in with the rest of your natural smile. This prosthetic utilizes clasps to stabilize your prosthetic teeth, giving you a smile that looks great and functions easily.
If you’re looking for the most stable smile available, we can combine dental implants with dentures to help you achieve amazing results. Dental implants are small titanium posts that get surgically placed in the jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots. Once an average of 4 implants are placed, we can mount your denture. Rooted in the jawbone, dental implants allow you to eat, speak, and grin with ultimate confidence. There is no possibility of your denture slipping or sliding because it’s firmly secure with implants.
In order to keep your smile as clean and healthy as possible, it’s important that you know the right steps for maintaining your dentures. If you have implant-retained dentures, simply care for them as you would your normal smile, visiting our office for routine checkups to ensure that it’s still feeling and functioning properly. However, removeable dentures should be taken out each night and soaked in denture solution or water. This shakes loose plaque and food debris that build up throughout the day. You should also use a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive tooth paste to clean your dentures in Syracuse daily. Additionally, it’s a good idea to have some denture adhesive on hand in case your denture needs more stability.
